Our Pastors

Jonathan met his wife, Coralie, at Northwest Baptist College in Langley, B.C. They have been married since 1995 and have been blessed with four children.

God has, in His providence, moved them across North America. Jonathan has served in Baptist denominations in BC, Alberta, and Georgia. Jonathan was ordained in the Southern Baptist Convention in 1998. He received his MDiv from Covenant Seminary (PCA) in St. Louis, Missouri in 2014.

It is Jonathan's hope that God can use him to encourage the church in their union with Christ so that we live as salt and light in God's world.

Our Elders

Mr. John Moerman

John has been with Trinity Presbyterian Church since it’s inception in 2003. A lifelong resident of Chatham-Kent, John and his wife Eileen own and operate a farm in the Ridgetown area. There they raised their family of eight children... a family which has grown to include six sons and daughters in law and 18 grandchildren.

John's keen desire is to see a growing worshiping community that actively and joyfully serves the risen Lord Jesus Christ. He serves as elder at Trinity Presbyterian Church to contribute to that community goal.

John is eager to meet with committed believers as well as seekers and skeptics of the Christian Faith. John and Eileen's home is always open for hospitality, fellowship, and friendship.

Mr. Henry VanTil

Henry is a life long resident of Chatham Kent, having grown up on a farm in the Rondeau area. He and his wife Joanne currently own and operate that same farm as a turkey, hog, and cash crop operation. Raising six children there, five have gone on so far to careers and further education. Henry enjoys farming, reading, sports of all kinds, as well as spending time outdoors with his family.

Our Diaconate

Mr. John Timmermans

Ken Drouillard

Ken has been serving as a deacon at Trinity ARP since September of 2023. He was born and raised in Windsor and Essex County as a member of the Catholic church. He met his wife, Michelle, from Cornwall, Ontario and after their marriage in 1997 they moved to Tilbury and began their spiritual journey together. Seeking biblical study, they left the Catholic church and entered into the Word of Faith movement in 2005. Years later, with much deliberation, guidance, prayer, and the Bible as their only authority, the Lord led them to the Reformed faith. They became members of Trinity ARP in Chatham in 2017 and are thankful to God for His guidance. 

Throughout their journey,  they have been blessed with 5 children whom they have homeschooled and who have grown up way too fast!  Ken has worked at the Chrysler Assembly plant in Windsor since 1995. He enjoys reading, biking, camping, home renovations and especially spending time with the family. His prayer and desire is that all professing Christian churches would recognize and submit to the Word of God as their only source of authority for truth, worship, and daily living, and that God would be glorified in it.
